Grandeur Peak Funds re-opened

Noticed this the other day. GPGOX, GPIOX, GPROX, GPEOX...I was evenable to pick up GPMCX in my 401k brokerage account...I guess I missed the announcement.

    Yes, they opened back in early April. David wrote about it in his monthly commentary.

    International Stalwarts is closed to third party financial intermediaries effective June 10.

    I picked up GPMCX for a non-taxable account.
  • Thanks, Shadow. Late to party I guess
  • Better late than never.
  • How did you pick up GPMCX? Are you investing directly with Grandeur Peak?
  • I’m not sure, Lewis. This was surprising to me. The order executed in my brokerage that’s part of my company’s 401k.
  • I have heard a couple of investors purchased the fund with Grandeur Peak then transferred it to a brokerage.

    What brokerage did you use?
  • Firm is called Empower Retirement.
  • At least you were able to purchase it.

    I just noticed that Schwab has it open to "available to existing shareholders".

    Not all the brokerages are up to date with the status of mutual funds which is a problem.

    Yes, I thought GPMCX was re-opened only to existing shareholders, but new investors with no prior position, have been able to purchase GPMCX. @Gmarceau purchased a new position, without being an existing shareholder. That is contrary to what is listed in the summary prospectus.
